Mixed Berry Pufflings

I'm intending to do a whole collection of other things you can make in an æbleskiver pan. According to my brand new æbleskiver pan (Mange tak, Momse!) packaging the English 'translation' of æbleskiver is puff dumplings but, pufflings sounds much better, no? If you're confused about what æbleskiver are, see this link.

100% pure extract stevia powder is incredibly sweet and generally comes with it's own scoop. If you wish to use a different type of stevia powder or sweetener you'll need to follow the packet directions for the equivalent of 2 tbsp of sugar.

Mixed Berry Pufflings
makes approx 18-20

125g/1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
250ml/1 cup soy milk
20ml/1 tbsp lemon juice
7 scoops 100% pure extract stevia powder
OR 2 tbsp icing sugar
150g/1 cup whole mixed berries
1/2 t bi-carb soda
1 t agave syrup
OR 2 t liquid honey (if not vegan)
2 t neutral vegetable oil

In a jug, Stir lemon juice through soy milk.
Leave to stand for 5-10 minutes.
It will curdle, so don't worry if it's lumpy and smells.
Lightly purée the mix berries.
Add stevia/sugar, agave/honey & oil to the berries.
Stir well.
In a large bowl, Sift flour & bi-carb soda.
Add soy milk & lemon juice.
Stir until large lumps are gone.
Add the berries, stevia/sugar, agave/honey & oil mix.
Stir gently until combined.
Over low heat, warm your æbleskiver pan.
Place a few drops of neutral vegetable oil in each hole.
Spoon mix into each hole until almost full, approx 1 tbsp each.
When the top seems to have almost completely set,
Flip with a spoon, or more traditionally a knitting needle.
Cook until a dark golden brown.
Repeat with remainder, remembering to oil between batches.
Drain on paper towels.
Serve warm.
